Cover Reveal: Avalon

Some cats need nine lives to make a difference.Avalon only needed one.

From Amazon bestselling author Vanessa Morgan, Avalon is the
heartwarming and once-in-a-lifetime love story of a girl and her
neurotic Turkish Van cat.

With humor, the author details how Avalon made other creatures
cringe in distress whenever he was around, how he threw her dates out
by means of special techniques, and how he rendered it almost
impossible for her to leave the house. Avalon was so incorrigible that
even her landlord ordered her to get rid of him. But beneath Avalon's
demonic boisterousness, Vanessa recognized her own flaws and
insecurities,and she understood that abandoning Avalon would be
the worst she could do to him. Thanks to her unswerving loyalty,
Avalon transformed into a tender feline, and even landed a major role
in a horror movie. In turn, Avalon made it his mission to be there for
his human companion.

through flea markets, or photographing felines for her blog
